    Hi, We'll be in Disney 12/17-12/26 this year for holidays. Will Big Thunder Mtn be reopened by the time of our trip? Can I still choose it when I schedule our fast passes in four days?

    Hello, Tonya!

    Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're excited to answer your question and help you plan your upcoming vacation!

    No official announcements have been made about when Big Thunder Mountain Railroad will reopen after refurbishments. Hopefully, within the next month and by the time of your December vacation, this popular attractions will be open. 

    For your FastPass+ selection, I would suggest seeing if the attraction will be available for your planned dates. If so, you'll be all set! On the hand, if the attraction is still not available for FastPass+ selection, check back at least once a week to see if Big Thunder Mountain Railroad has become available for FastPass+.

    Maybe within the next few weeks, the website or Disney Parks Blog will be updated with the official reopening date! 

    Happy planning! If you need more assistance, please visit with us again!
